Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, S.pH.mb.r 2, 1972 THZ UTHMIDCI HWALD Sinden selects starting line-up tonight Team Canada set for series opener MONTREAL (CP) Quick now, when was tho last time a Canadian hockey team defeated a team from the Soviet Union? Well, believe it or not, a Ca- nadian team did score a victory over the Russians earlier this year Feb. 22 when University of Toronto Varsity Blues dumped a Soviet student team o-l at Varsity Arena. But before than, Canadian victories have been scarce over the Russians. Tonight, Team Canada hopes to launch win- ning streak against the Rus- sians selects in the opening game of their eight-game exhi- bition series. The game Is scheduled lor p.m. after Prime Minister Trudeau, fresh from calling a federal election Friday, drops the puck for Hie oflicial face- off. Opposition leader Robert Stanfield will be on hand as well. The game will be tele- vised on the CTV network and some CBC-affiliated stations. Both clubs worked out Friday and then then- head coaches Harry Sinden of Team Canada and Vsevolod Bobrov of the So- viet Union, named their start- Ing alignments. TBETIAK IN GOAL Either Ken Dryden of Men treal Canadiens or Chicago Black Hawks' Tony Espositc will start in goal for Team Can ada while 20-year-old Vladislav Treliak will begin the game ir the nets for the Russians. SLnden would not divulge hi starting goalie and explainec why. 'Both came out of the Team Canada training camp with balanced Stadcn said "Ken would have a good scrim mage, then Tony would be the star. They were both equa there." There were no real surprises when the Canadian team was announced. Brad Park of York Rangers and Gary Serf man ol Detroit Red Wings wi form one defence pairing whi' Boston Bruins' Don Awrey anc Rod Soiling of New York wi be Ihe other. Guy Lapointe of the Cana dleiis will he the fifth defen ceman and may see some wor on the power-plays.

Bobby Clarke of Phlladclphi ycrs will centre the Ihlrd ith Ron Ellis and Paul Hen- irson of Toronto Maple Leafs lilo Detroit's Rod Berenson 11 centre team-mate Mickey edmond and Montreal's Peter ahovlich. Sinden sfiid he was sure there as some disappointment on te part of some players who ere not picked, but "there to be no hard feelings." "The first game may be the lost significant, but it Is not w most Important. All the ames are Important." Tretiak's back-up goalie will o Viktor Zinger, who played jainsl the Canadian national earn in 1969. Veteran Alexan- er Ragulin will head up a six- an defensive corp while the ovlet line will be Vladimir ikulov, Alexander Maltsev and Valery Kharlmov. Guennady Tsygankov, Eu- eny Poladyev, Yuri Liapkin, Kuzkin and either Vladi- lir Lutchenko or Alexander Jusev will round out the de- ence for the Soviets. Gusev is eported ill and if he can play, Lutchenko will sit out. MEITHBK AT PEAK Eugeny Zimin, Vladimir Sha- drin, Alexander Yajushev, Boris Mikhailov, Vladimir Pet- ov, Yuri Blinov, Eugeny Msha- !0v and Vyacheslav Starshinov rill bo the other forwards dressed. Both coaches expressed soma dissatisfaction with the condi- ion of their players. "Our physical fitness Is not up to the snid Bubrov. 'Our inter-club season does not begin for another .month. Our Stampeders have a long climb back to the top By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Stampeders want to climb out of a hole and Edmon- ton Eskimos hope to make It deeper. That will be part if ihe West- ern Football Conference ccene Monday afternoon when the Es- kimos put their 4-1 record on the line against the inconsistent Stampeders in a game at Cal- gary's McMahon Stadium. In Regliui, the explosive Win- 0 1 p e g Blue share first place with the Es- be out to extend their four-game winning streak riders, fresh from a two-game against Saskatchewan Rough- riders, fresh from a two-game sweep over the Stampeders. For Calgary coach Jim Dun- can the situation is simple: "IJ we're ever to make a re- covery, now is the time. If we don't, we'll go further Into the hole." It's the first chance In regu. lar-season play for the Rough- riders and Stampeders to test the leaders. And victories would result in a three-way tie for first with Calgary two points behind. HAVE 8 EACH The Bombers and Eskimos have eight points apiece, two more than the Roughriders, with a 3-3 record. The Stampe- ders have four points on two winds and three defeats, whilo British Columbia Lions, idle an- Grey Cup who were solid at this time last year, have been taking advantage in re- cent days of National Football League cuts as the U.S. teams trim their rosters lor the 1972 schedule. Five players are m camp on five-day trials, including offen- sive lineman Marion Lallimoro from Kansas State and Louis Age from South-western Loui- siana, running back Fritz Sey- forth from the University at Michigan and defensive back Bob Banaugh from Montana Stale. Also seeking wide receiver a position Is Peter Paliottl from Loyola College who was cut earlier this year by Mon- treal Alou cites. For Edmonton, the news li good and bad. Argonauts seek first victory peak mil be in December. We were very impressed with .he Canadian team's practice. 11 hope that Mr. Sinden will give i us a good practice here so we can win the world champion- ships in Moscow next year." "We are not in the condition we should bo to play a top flight said Sinden. "It lakes eight to 10 games to get in top game condition." But, no mailer what condllion Ihe players are in, tonight Is tho night when the two schools of hockey meet for the first time. "It's the biggest sporting Oilng in Canadian history from Ihe point of view of said Al Eagleson, executive-di- rector of the NHL's Players' Association. "It's the hottest thing that has ever hit Canada. "We feel we have the best hockey players. Now we have a char.ce to prove we are right.

The ruling by Judge Philip Tone extended for 10 days a previous order issued Aug. 24 in U.S. district court prohibit- ing Hull until Sept. 4 from at- tending Ihe Jets' training camp or "representing himself as anything other than a Chicago Black Hawk player." The restraining order exten- sion is academic: regarding at- tending the Jet training camp since the WHA has set an Oct. 1 date for former National Hockey players to re- port to teams of the new league. Judge William Lynch of U.S. district court will rule Sept. 15 on whether a previous Black Hawk suit against Hull find a counter-suit against the Black Hawks and the NHL by Hull should be tried in federal or state court. The case centre.-, on Ilic legal- ity of Hull's departure from the Black Hawks to the Jets while still under contract to the Hawks. Hull was ordered lo appear in court Sept. 15, furnishing the contract he signed with the Jets on Juno 27 for a reported mi'.'iion. Hull's current Hank contract expires Sept. 30 and his Jot contract begins Oct. 1.

Winnipeg, which won only seven games last year while fiiusliing third, obviously im- pressed Saskatchewan coach Dave Skrien after the Bombers walloped the Eskimos 49-16 Wednesday. "They looked unbeatable against Edmonton. They're the best team in the country right now. They did everything right they have vastly im- proved their defence over lost year and they are a better team than last year." The Bombers lost their open- Ing game 31-7 In Calgary, but came back with wins over the Stampeders, the Lions, Toronto Argonauts and the Eskimos. Two of tho Winnipeg Players Saskatchewan will have to con- trol are quarterback Don Jonas, who has passed for 10 of his club's 18 touchdowns, and speedy Mack Herron, with nine touchdowns and tha rushing lead in the WFC. The Bombers' defence, which allowed the second most points in the WFC last season, will have opportunity to prove itself against another high-scoring team, featuring the scrambling of quarterback Ron Lancaster and the running of fullback George Reed. ROOKIE IS FACTOR Considered a major factor in Winnipeg's improved defence is rookie lineback Mike Kuhn from Kansas State, who suf- fered a pinched nerve against Edmonton and will have to wear a protective collar. Meanwhile, Calgary fans arc expected to see middle line- backer Wayne Harris wearing a similar collar. The veteran all-star, who suf- fered a chipped neck vertebra in Calgary's last game, isn't listed as a doubtful starter but may not jet much action. De- fensive end Craig Koinzan could spell Harris wilh Jim Bond taking over Koinzan's po- sition. On the sidelines for the Stampeders will be defensive back Frank Andruski, nursing a torn calf muscle. Receiver John Senst could see limited action due to strained knee ligaments. The Stampeders, defending By THE CANADIAN PRESS i Wintess in their first five sea- son games, Toronto Argonauts might be expected to unwind and win a game one of these days, strengthened by the knowledge that things just can't get any worse. But things do keep getting worse for the Argos and it now appears they would fare belter in the Wheelchair Olympics than in an Eastern Football Conference encounter with Mon- treal Alouetlcs Monday. The Argos limp out for a Z p.m. EOT kickoff in Montreal while Ottawa Roughriders take on the Tiger-Cats at Hamilton at the same time. There Is no television coverage scheduled for either game. Winnipeg Is at- Saskatchewan and Edmonton at Calgary in Monday's Western Conference action. The Argos were just getting over their 14-13 loss to the Roughriders in Ottawa Wednes day when defensive end Bruce Bergey had to be taken to hos pital and subsequently onto thi So-day injury list. Bergey played In Ottawa bu when he woke up Thursda. morning, he had severe ches pains. At hospital, It was dis covered he had a hole In one lung.
